Currently Digging: The Grenadines

Above you can stream/download the new full-length self-titled album from Birmingham’s the Grenadines, an awesome psych-rock outfit with a Southern tinge.  “Reservations” evokes the grungy dirge of sludge rockers Black Mountain, but the crew has a distinct, positive range in melody as well, as is shown by the beautiful “Firecracker” and “Counting Backwards.”

The LP is a quick listen, clocking in at just under 35 minutes with twelve songs, most of which are under three minutes.  It’s a fine introduction to a group I’m certain we’re going to be hearing more about in the future.

I’m making it a lifelong goal to get the Grenadines to tour with St. Vincent.  Then they can tour Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. …let the record show I was the first person to ever do that joke.
